Sign the Petition and Support the LUYDs!

Our LUYD chapter is still an unrecognized chapter at Liberty. Jerry Falwell Jr. has offered to allow them back on campus if they charter with Democrats for Life or any other such pro-life or traditional marriage organization.

In their constitution the Liberty University Young Democrats declare they are pro-life and support a traditional view of marriage, per Liberty University's requests when they originally allowed to them to charter.

“We are in no way attempting to stifle free speech": Liberty University Shuts Down Young Democrats

Today Liberty University in Lynchburg shut down their chapter of the Young Democrats, citing the pro-choice, pro-equality stances of the national Democratic Party. Students continuing to use Liberty facilities and its name are subject to formal reprimands from the school. These reprimands can lead to expulsion.

No, you read that right. Liberty University is threatening students who formally organize on their campus as Young Democrats with expulsion. Disgusted? Sign the petition conveniently located on the right of your screen.

Tell ODEC: Energy Efficiency, Not New Coal in Surry

Take Action NOW: Dirty coal's influence in Virginia means newspapers covering Old Dominion Electric Cooperative's proposed coal plant in Surry are leaving a lot out, like the benefits of energy efficiency. While highlighting the controversy over whether meeting our energy needs requires a choice between the economy and the environment, they forget to talk about the energy solutions that are best for the Surry community. As Democrats, let's remind ODEC it's time to move beyond coal.
